This week, we did collaborative science, collaborative history, and literature essays. In collaborative science, we have been studying magnets. This week we learned about invisible gears. In collaborative history this week we are working on kings, nobles, knights, and peasants. In writers workshop we are doing flash drafting.
Also, the geometry lessons continue as the students move deeper and deeper into the curriculum. Pictures below are the 6th-year students finding two formulas for the area of a decagon using materials. The 4th-year students are working on the concept of exterior angles, while the 5th-year students are focusing on the relationship between lines in constructive triangles.
